A prosecutor cited Oklahoma's "Stand Your Ground" law in announcing that no charges would be filed against a man who shot and killed a teen who appeared to be a burglar.

Comanche County District Attorney Robert Schulte said he plans to take no action against Jeffrey David Dorrell, 40, who shot and killed Frederick Stuever, 17.
 

WV: No Mystery As To Why Young Americans Love Ron Paul

Yet, of all the GOP candidates, it could be argued that Paul is the strongest when it comes to his pro-life position. A former Air Force doctor, he says he's rarely seen any need to terminate a pregnancy for the life of the mother. And on the gun issue, he is predictable, which is refreshing with tortured logic reining among other candidates like Rudy Giuiliani: if the Constitution allows for the right to bear arms, that's all the Congressman from southeast Texas needs to know.

On Sunday, Bob Mette and his son, Mike, 30, will go to the game at Soldier Field to watch the Bears play the Lions. On Monday, Bob will drive Mike to Iowa, to prison. Mike Mette, until recently a Chicago police officer, is scheduled to begin serving a 5-year prison sentence.

His crime? According to the judge's ruling, Mike threw one punch at an angry drunk who chased Mike down the street and attacked him verbally, physically, repeatedly.

Witnesses said the shooting was preceded by a fight inside the shooter's car. Three observers on Cartier Street said they saw four men beat the driver, who later grabbed a weapon from the center console and warned, "I've got a gun."

"It was self-defense," said Mike Albert, 16, who watched the skirmish unfold from his mother's third-floor balcony.

Paul Cray reflects only a second before concluding his confidence amounts to arrogance. But in sports, that's not necessarily a bad thing. "Maybe it doesn't translate to you being a better human being but it makes you win stuff," he explained. And win stuff Cray certainly has. The 40-year-old professional musician, a resident of Salt Point, captured the World Field Target Federation's pre-charged pneumatic rifle class title last Sunday in Tennessee, four months after winning the American Airgun Field Target Association Nationals in that class and just nine months after making the transition from shooting in the piston class, where he'd won two U.S. National titles.

When Eastern Europe broke free in 1989, we all realized just how little thought had been given to the transition from socialism to capitalism. Mises had told us the collapse was coming, and we should have been prepared.

As America comes to resemble a command economy, we need a transition plan here too. Yuri Maltsev proposed a "One-Year Plan" for the U.S.S.R. We're not in that bad a shape (yet), so we could do it in 30 days

Can any of you anti-gun, Second Amendment haters answer a question? If the Second Amendment did not pertain to the citizenry at large, how did the Founding Fathers expect us to eat? Were we all supposed to become vegetarians after the Constitution went into effect?

"...and rode up to within 25 or 30 feet of Starr, who made no effort to flee, that Wilson then sprang from his horse, threw his gun to his shoulder, and fired at Starr, who was then standing with his gun in both hands, holding it down, but, upon Wilson's shooting, returned the fire, and continued to fire rapidly..."

"...the possession of a conscience void of offense towards God and men is not an indispensable prerequisite to justification of action, in the face of imminent and deadly peril. Nor does the intrinsic rightfulness of the occupation or situation of a party, having in itself no bearing upon or connection with an assault, impose a limitation on the right to repel it..."

Canada formally asked the United States on Thursday to remove former Canadian terror suspect Maher Arar from its no-fly list -- a day after Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice publicly admitted Washington bungled the case.

Rice suggested yesterday that Arar would remain on U.S. security watch lists -- despite the admission that U.S. officials mishandled the case and despite a Canadian inquiry which cleared Arar of any links to terrorism.

"...and, on account of his own wrong, was placed in a situation wherein it became necessary for him to defend himself against an attack made upon himself, which was superinduced or created by his own wrong, then the law justly limits his right of self-defense..."

"...in respect of the possession of a deadly weapon by the accused, it was error to ignore evidence indicating that such possession was for an innocent purpose..."

Editorial - it's not time to go to sleep of course, but it's nice to get some good news from time to time. You'll love the graph showing the downward trend of the percentage of Americans who support stricter gun control laws. From 78% in 1990 down to present 51%. Let's be happy about our progress & keep up the great work! Tell everyone why gun control doesn't work!

NFL teams don't usually take stands on controversial issues, so it was a little surprising to look at the Chicago Bears' official web site today and see that the main headline is "Harris on a Mission to Stop Gun Violence." The accompanying article, about Bears defensive tackle Tommie Harris, says he was moved to act after watching TV news accounts of Chicago Public School students who were shot and killed.

"...The evidence tended to show that the Allisons resided, up to the year 1893, in the state of Washington; that the parents had been divorced; that the father had repeatedly threatened the lives of the members of his family, and for an assault upon one of his sons and his son-in-law, by shooting at them with a pistol..."

"...whereupon his son John, who had a gun in his hand, told him he must leave, and the father dared John to come out..."

"...Mr. Chief Justice FULLER, after stating the facts as above, delivered the opinion of the court..."

"...If defendant were 'in the right at the time of the killing,' the inquiry as to how he came to be armed was immaterial..."

Despite assurances from local police and the Town Board, one resident remains concerned about a police shooting range behind the town highway garage on Route 20. At a Town Board meeting earlier this month, resident Tim Plante said he received information from the police department that they planned to conduct target practice the last two weeks of September and all this month. Mr. Plante, who owns three parcels in the area including a 12-unit apartment building, said the shooting lasts until 9 p.m. making it difficult to sleep. He is also worried for the safety of his children and others, saying there are no signs in the area saying there is a firing range nearby, or any other safety measures.

New Bloomfield, Perry County - A suspended Marysville police officer accused of sex crimes against teenage girls has been moved from the Perry County Prison for his own protection.

Robert J. Pavlovich Jr., 39, of Camp Hill was arrested Thursday on charges he had sexual contact with teenage girls and solicited sex from teens in exchange for not filing criminal charges.

Prison officials felt it was not safe to incarcerate Pavlovich with people he may have arrested.

According to court documents, Pavlovich had indecent contact with three young girls, including one who was under the age of 13, and contacted two other minors for the purpose of engaging in sexual activity.

Albany Police Department officials wrote a letter to the federal government four years ago saying the department had lost 12 machine guns that were part of an arsenal of assault weapons illegally purchased by dozens of officers in the mid-1990s. The letter, which was sent to the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives in Washington, D.C., was signed by then-Police Chief Robert Wolfgang. A copy was recently shared with the Times Union by a source with access to the department's records.

A 75-year-old man who shot an intruder later told officials he did so despite being legally blind. The intruder, an acquaintance, is being charged with burglary and battery. Police say 28-year-old Cevaughn Curtis Jr. knocked on the door of Arthur Williams' home around 3 a.m. Friday and asked to be let inside. When Williams refused, police say Curtis pushed the door in anyway. Williams went into his bedroom, called 911 and then shot Curtis in the neck, said Sgt. Barry Kays of the Gainesville Police Department.

Dozens of guns were taken off Rochester’s streets Saturday at the ‘No questions asked’ Gun Drop-Off. Five area churches opened their doors to collect guns. The first 100 people to turn in a gun got a $50 gift card from Wegmans. Rochester police say that incentive has made the Gun Drop-Off more successful. Organizers hoped to collect more than 100 guns on Saturday.

The Geneva Police Department held its first "Amnesty Gun Program" this weekend. It was in response to the same kind of violence Rochester is fiercely fighting. The community's response was a surprise to the authorities involved.
 

Rudy Giuliani shows his Ignorance of the Second Amendment

During a town hall meeting in northwestern New Hampshire last week, presidential hopeful Rudy Giuliani told a former police office:
"You have a constitutional right, that is protected, to bear and carry arms. It is the Second Amendment.If someone disagrees with that, you have to get the Constitution changed."

Since Mr. Giuliani is a former federal prosecutor and these individuals' knowledge of the Constitution appears to be limited to reading court cases, the author decided to use a United States Supreme Court case to show perspective[sic] voters, who care about gun rights, that Giuliani is totally ignorant of the nature of the Second Amendment.

The Gem State, eager to attract new jobs and industry, is positioning itself as the best possible home for the nation's 200 small arms manufacturers - companies worth a collective $2 billion per year but unwelcome in many of the states that have long been their home.

"Like any smart business, gun manufacturers are looking for places that facilitate low operational costs, such as business taxes, utility costs and a good place for employees to live," said Richard Schelowitz, an analyst for AFC, which monitors the firearms industry.

"But unlike some businesses, this industry is also growing weary of regulations and public perceptions that might make it more difficult - and therefore more costly - to do business."
